Openmoko sells the Neo FreeRunner at a discount if bought in multiples of 10 (US$369, instead of 399), to be shipped in one package. Group buying will thus save money on the purchase, and on the shipping. This page is to organise group purchases by region.

For calculating shipping costs, the dimensions of one 10-pack is 435mm x 371mm x 119mm. The weight should be around 3kg.

Steve from Openmoko announced "Every 10 pack, will come with a box of stuff. 10 pouches and 10 head sets." So join us within a local group !

NO Openmoko FreeRunner 900/1800 available anymore (on July 3, 2008 at 21h) as needed in Europe. Furthermore, confirmation: From Our sales price is 299 EUR + shipping 15 EUR in Europe = 314 EUR. The idea of "open" is ours. So check our price calculation: if you order the FreeRunner from Taiwan, it's 399 USD + 100 USD shipping + c. 90 USD "import taxes" inside Europe. Total 589 USD = c.380 EUR. So it will be cheaper and we Europeans have 2 years of warranty when buying from Pulster, instead of a 14 days(?) for imported goods.

Cancelled for the above reason (and not 10 people reached)

If we do not reach a total large enough, Denmark **is** a very small place - surely we could figure out a way of getting them to find their way 'round the country :)

EU (german) vs. Direct (Openmoko) discussion

Esben Damgaard has created a Google Group discussion to evaluate which is the optimal:

Asbjørn Sloth Tønnesen (contact) has offered to act as invoice hub for group sales from either Openmoko or Handheld-Linux. Details

Invoice considerations

According to Lone Borre from the rules are different if the buyer is private or a company. If a company buys the phone the invoice must be addressed to the company and the company must be a registered importer. This makes it harder to do a group sale in which 2 of the recipients need an invoice.

Should anyone need it, transportation from Aalborg to Thisted for phones can be arranged, if you don't want to pick it up in Aalborg yourself :) ~leinir

  • Da es das Gerät bei PULSTER für 299€ gibt und man mit einem 10er Paket diesen Preis nicht unterbieten kann, abgesehen davon, dass wir sowieso keine 10 Leute zusammenbekommen, sollte jeder sein Gerät einzeln Bestellen. Lediglich die Versandkosten kann man bei einer 10er Bestellung bei PULSTER sparen, was sich auch nicht lohnt. Die Accessoires muss man bei PULSTER separat bestellen. Ich hoffe, dass das allen genehm ist. --White gecko 22:37, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Da PULSTER den Preis aus 329€ gehoben hat würde sich ein 10er Paket bei PULSTER wieder lohnen, da man so 30€ pro Gerät sparen würde, wie sieht es mit euch aus?

We are now at 10 people and will be closing the order soon. If you want to join in add your name here and on the blog asap.

Because Pulster are offering the units at €299 apiece with a 2 year warranty and free shipping (without the freebies though) we are going to order from them and not direct from Taiwan.

To register your interest for the Dublin shipment please post a comment on this blog post and enter your details below.

(Discuss this group sale on the talk page)

Special notice

After discussion on the talk page, a number of us have decided to place an individual order at, because they are cheaper than the group sale discount, and they deliver a receipt with VAT.
I'd advise the people on this group sale-list to do the same.
You can indeed place a group order at, but that won't lower the price, and would only add extra shipping costs. (from the person who made the group-order to the individual members of the group) MadJo 11:04, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

As Telecom are using the 850MHz network for their GSM network, while Vodafone and northelia (possibly aka orcon) are using 900/1800MHz, please state which version you want. This may need more research, I'm not 100%; see [12] for more info


Based on the Openmoko direct store, shipping is US$258.05 (US$25.81/phone)

Someone on the community list suggested using [13], a shipping company that will re-post items overseas at decent rates. They claim US$66 for a 3kg package, or NZ$8 per phone. Of course, the cost of shipping the phone from OM to the shipping company has to be added in as well.

Purchase cost

As of 2008-07-03 (exchange rate 0.7505), US$369 is worth NZ$492 and US$25.81 is worth NZ$34.39

Duty/taxes/other charges

import duty on mobile phones is 0%[14], and GST is 12.5% so the GST added to each phone will be NZ$65.80; 12.5% * (492 + 34.39), 'cause we pay GST on postage too...

You'll also need to add on disbursement fees etc. If it's UPS it's not too bad (~NZ$40) if it comes through NZ Post then it can be ~NZ$120.

So, the total cost of a FreeRunner as part of a 10 pack, will be:
492 + 34.39 + 65.80 = NZ$592.19 + NZ$4 = ~NZ$596

+ any possible charges to get it posted elsewhere in New Zealand.

Also, for the person buying, don't forget that there is likely charges from VISA for foreign exchange. ASB is 2.1% of the purchase price which will add ~$12.50 ea. to the price.

nicegear may be bringing some in depending on pricing from Openmoko.



Status:10 phones requested, the required minimum (10 phones) is reached, but more buyers are still welcome to join.


Glen ogilvie made a suggestion, that we could use a company (e.g. someone's employer, who are likely to have easily found contact details and thus be trustworthy) to buy the phones on our behalf (after we'd paid for them), and then deliver them to us.
any volunteers? do any of you have understanding bosses/your own company that could help out here?
Dave Lane: I think Egressive would be willing to act as an intermediary. Contact me to discuss it...

Our order is underway so we closed our group to any more people.

User:JohnCarter I'm confused now. Is the following a list of people about to do a group buy, or a list of people who already have done a group buy? In which case can we move them to a different section so we can start up another.

Purchaser List

*Paul Sandkuijl User:Edictor Contact me here Napier (I'll pay for postage to Napier from Auckland) and I also suggest a PayPal/Safetrader similar service, 1 Vodafone compatible 900/1800MHz.

  • Brent Wood User:pcreso Email Wellington. Will pay courier to Wgtn. 1x Vodafone compatible 900/1800Mhz unit
  • Glen Ogilvie User:Nelg Email Auckland, 1x Vodafone compatible 900Mhz.
  • Nigel Somerfield User:Silversurfer Wellington, 1 x 900MHz + 1800MHz (happy to pay for courier or to arrange pick-up).


Looks like there are a few of us in Christchurch now - is it worth consolidating on this leg too?

Note: An order was already made to Pulster. The names of the people on that group buy was removed from this list.

Shop is open (currently only 850MHz version available. We want 900MHz): Shipping cost to Portugal for 10-pack: $219.07, ~ 14 EUR per device.

We also need to have a cost estimation for Portuguese customs (like the Australians did). 20% sales tax + customs tax is to be expected both for individual or bulk sales, because the price is quite high. But freedom is priceless :)

We have a google group for discussion about a possible Swedish group order:, see Svensk Gruppbeställning av FreeRunner. Please join the discussion!

If insufficient number of people, orders could be merged and remailed perhaps.

Domestic remailing with Posten as A-class mail of a letter (criteria: length+width+height max 900 mm) weighing max 1 kg, without insurance should cost 44 SEK. 50 SEK more for insurance.

If we end up with more than one 10-pack in Sweden, my guess is that it would probably pay to order everything in one shipment to one address in Sweden to save on the international shipping, and then remail domestically.

    1x 10 Pack ordered from pulster for the group Zürich! Read more below 17:20, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

    ??? should organize the 3 x 10pack for Zürich
    Luca Capello could organize the 10pack for Geneva.
    Mathieu will organisze the 2 x 10pack for Lausanne EPFL CH-fr

    All payment in advance (a 10pack will cost approx 3'800 USD).

    Probably we will organize shippings, if we cannot all move to Zürich/Genève/Lausanne to get our Neo.

    François Bianco is trying to create a new group of 10 (will be mostly for French Switzerland). -> The group moved to the EPFL group, which will try to reach 20 persons. --Fbianco 11:42, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
    Gabriel Ambuehl would volunteer to order the initial 10pack. <- still accurate ? -> Gabriel will not organize the 10packs for Zürich due to not being in Switzerland. We are in contact to find a solution so please wait until we know what to do. Order in Germany (each for himself or as a group, not clear yet) could be as cheap as a 10pack. We are in contact with and will be contacted form pulster about the price. We will contact you guys in the Zürich list as soon as we know more 10:26, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
    Alexandre Ghisoli will not organize the second 10pack, since the order moved in the Lucca's group.

    Customs and Postage

    I called the Swiss Federal Customs Administration and it seems that we only need to pay VAT (7.6%) and the UPS taxes as well (since the parcel will be sent through UPS). Thus I called UPS and it seems that UPS directly pays the VAT instead of the customer, then asking the customer for refund (plus a fixed tax of EUR13.00). So I think the following per-phone cost for a Swiss bulk order should be a good estimate.

    Bulk Order USD CHF
    Customs Value (Cval) 3690.00 3837.60
    Postage 160.00 166.40
    Value of Taxable Importation (VoTI) = Cval+Postage 3850.00 4004.00
    VAT = 7.6% of VoTI 292.60 304.30
    UPS fixed tax (EUR13.00) 20.00 20.80
    Total Cost 4162.60 4329.10
    Per Person 416.26 432.91

    Figures accurate as of 4th Jun 2008 from UBS: 1EUR = 1.54USD and 1USD = 1.04CHF.


    If we would ship Neos, here is the Swiss PostPac prices :

    Description Size [cm] Price CHF TTC
    Size 1 22.9 x 14.7 x 9.9 2.20
    Size 2 31.5 x 22.5 x 12.5 2.40
    Shipping Priority up to 2Kg 8.-
    Shipping Economy up to 2Kg 6.-

    Steve posted informations about boxes that will be out with Neo :

    • 10 pack : 435mm x 371mm x 119mm, approx 3kg, UPS will charge 160USD (need to be verified)
    • Individual pack : 178mm x 104mm x 84mm, 237 grams

    So size 1 will fit ! Local delivery in Switzerland will cost 8.20 for Economy or 10.20 Priority.

    There is a group sale hosted by chelsea (AT) openmoko (DOT) com. Please goto for details. (ends at 2008/11/02)


    Q: Will there be second group sale in Taiwan?

    A: Yes, there could be more group sales in Taiwan, if there are requests.

    Q: Is it GSM900 or GSM850?

    A: Openmoko can provide either GSM900 or GSM850 as required.

    Q: Is this group sale include gifts descriptive in ?

    A: Yes.

    Q: When will they arrive?

    A: I don't actually know, but I hope we can get them before end of August.

    Q: What about Invoice(發票)?

    A: There won't be a invoice for everyone, but one only. If you do need a separate invoice for your order, tell me first, and openmoko could handle that. Requests that OM could handle:

    • Company tax ID (公司統一編號)
    • Change details (明細) names (as long as the name can describe the product)

    Requests that OM could handle, but need special process, and the price will be higher. Please contact OM first if you have such request.

    • Change details to something that can't describe the product, like expandable (耗材), ink, ..., etc.
    • Some institution (government, school,...,etc) require to get goods and invoice first, and make the payment until the expanse is granted (某些學校或政府機關 需要取貨與發票後才能報帳,等一段時間後才能付款)

    • Joe Wells (Edinburgh) Web I have two comments:
      • The Wiki's e-mail feature (those URLs with “Special:Emailuser” in them) does not seem to be working. I tried contacting Dave Ball and Stuart MacKinnon that way and got no reply. Later, Stuart and Dave (who I reached by writing a message here) told me they never got the e-mail. So the Wiki's e-mail feature might be broken. So please contact me by going to my web page and using my e-mail address listed there. Stuart, George, and Dave have been in contact with me by e-mail. I am happy to put anyone in Scotland who sends me e-mail in touch with the others.
      • Not enough people have gotten in touch so far (as of 2008-06-28) to justify a bulk order of a 10-pack. Also, there is now a UK distributor: TrueBox. Because TrueBox appears to be ordering 10-packs (and thereby getting the bonus goodies (headphones and pouches) that come in the 10-packs), it seems there is little motivation to try to organize a Scottish bulk order. So I am likely to give up on the idea of a Scottish bulk order for myself (unless lots of people contact me in the next day or so!).

    Check for detailed contents.

    phone 399-365 USD ( 365 if we got 10-pack price, but if not exactly 10, I prefer we share the discount.)

    Dboard 99 USD

    Spares Pack 49 USD

    Maybe there will be tax, or other cost that should be shared. so it is not the final figure.

    080730 status update by mkl23

    Thanks to the generosity of Harry of openmoko, there will be a group sale in Taiwan for sure.

    If we can collect 10 piece, then we could have the 10-pack price. But even if we can't , they would still accept the order.

    One that are interested in Taiwan, please send an e-mail to, and specify the amount of the phone, debug board(DBoard), and spare packs that you want, along with your name and phone number.

    I hope it could be done fast, so the due date will be 8/17. Than I'll send the order to openmoko.

    I don't have such group sale experience yet, so mail me if you have any concern or question want to ask.
